First Recruitment Group Joins OGUK to Further Support Employment in the Oil & Gas Sector

04 Mar 2020

OGUK Member LogoFirst Recruitment Group are delighted to announce their membership of OGUK, who actively champion the UK offshore Oil & Gas industry.

After supporting Oil & Gas operators, EPC’s and consultancies for over 20 years by finding them quality candidates, First Recruitment are seeking to progress this engagement, by supporting the industry’s voice in the UK through OGUK.

OGUK is the leading representative body that champions the whole sector providing a source of information and a gateway to industry networks and expertise within Oil & Gas.

First Recruitment Group’s Client Development Director, Lewis Trow, commented, “OGUK have been a proactive voice for the industry for over 13 years and we’re delighted to be joining them. With over 250,000 jobs currently supported in the UK through Oil & Gas, nearly 60% in England and 40% in Scotland it’s important we continue to work together to support employment opportunities.

“The North Sea should still be in use for decades to come, as our clients look for a workforce to support that, and we strongly support OGUK’s promotion of a net zero emissions target by 2035 – Vision 2035.”

He continued, “Our sector is evolving, and even though there are currently many traditional Oil & Gas roles, there are also new emerging roles focused on environment, technology and R&D to make efficiencies and meet the net-zero 2035 target. We are looking forward to supporting this journey through skilled workers that meet our client’s individual and changing needs.”

OGUK Supply Chain Director Matt Abraham said:

“We’re delighted to have First Recruitment Group join OGUK as we work to inform, engage and champion our sector. Their company plays a valuable role in attracting the talent the industry needs in order to provide the UK with secure and affordable energy, make a vital contribution to the UK economy through jobs and taxation and utilise our diverse skills to meet the UK’s net zero ambitions.”
